JD: I think it would be very helpful to discuss the various places of punishment mentioned in the Bible both the Old and New Testaments so lets do that for a few moments.
DJ: Sheol is the place of the dead in the Old Testament mentioned sixty-five times in the Old Testament. It’s translated variously as hell some place. It is translated as Sheol in some places it’s translated as the pit and then other places that word is translated simply as the grave. So, the doctrine of hell in the Old Testament isn’t as detailed as it is in the New. In fact, Sheol being the place of the dead actually had two places within it one that would be known in the New Testament as Hades and the other part being paradise a place where the righteous went when they died.
